I don’t have much to say this week. We lost a friend of ours. A kind, funny, and all around awesome guy. I’ve been acting weird and broken because I haven’t really known how to talk about it. I’ve been saying that we had a death in the family, but then I have a hard time explaining. My own “real” family is so small and fractured. I’ve been lucky to build a network of people who are my urban family, who share advice and support and love. Wes was a part of that. He was a brother in my internet family.
I’m thankful for the time we had together and the memories. I’m sad I won’t be able to make any more.
It’s likely you didn’t know my friend Wes, but I can guarantee you would have liked him very much.
